What does Memorial Day Mean To Me?

What Memorial Day means to me is honoring the soldiers who have fought in wars for us to keep us safe. I come from a family with lots of members who have fought for our country and still today. On 4/17/2016 I went to my grandfathers ceremony at Tottenville High School that honored Vietnam Veterans. At the ceremony when I heard the speakers speak like Senator Andrew  Lanza and my grandpa Lester Modelowitz it came to me Memorial Day also means honoring the people who died in wars and did not return and the veterans that are still alive today who served for our country. Memorial Day is also about appreciating how veterans who risk their lives just for America and our Nation. In conclusion, what Memorial Day means to me is honoring and appreciating the Veterans who have risked their lives just to keep America, our Nation and all Americans Safe.
